Timeless Southern Porches
Posted by thunsicker in Featured Homes for Sale, Home Amenities, Living, Uncategorized on July 26, 2016
There are few things that say “Southern charm” like a comfortable, shady porch. There is something really special about enjoying an iced tea or a glass of wine, having a relaxed weekend meal, or relaxing with a book outdoors on the porch. They say “welcome to my home” and create a timeless first impression.
A twilight welcome at 2741 Vinings Orchard Circle
Although our summers can be hot, living in Atlanta means we get at least three seasons of use out of our porches.
As a realtor, I’m seeing the screened in porch as a big draw for potential buyers as well. Not only does a porch keep some of the harsh sunlight and heat out of your home, but a screened porch adds a lot of usable indoor/outdoor living space for a fraction of the cost of a home addition.
Southern porches can be as simple as a covered patio on the front of the house to a screened room with luxurious furnishings and a fireplace, surround sound, and entertainment center.
Furnishings are usually casual with comfort in mind. Rocking chairs are always welcome and it’s hard to go wrong with a porch swing.
Adding a ceiling fan can really enhance the comfort level and screening in a porch keeps out pests and makes outdoor dining a breeze. What could be better than summer entertaining with an outdoor kitchen and dining area on a porch?
There is a style of porch for every architectural style too, from rustic to neoclassical, low country to modern. Even pool houses and walk-out basement entrances are getting the screened porch treatment.
Adding shutters is a classic touch that also creates more privacy on a porch (and is a great place for kids to camp out during sleepovers).
Architectural and style trends may come and go, but a classic southern element like a great porch is timeless.

This new listing is a spacious 4 bedroom family home located in a desirable swim/tennis community just a short drive to Whitfield Academy. The stacked stone entry opens into an airy first floor living area and vaulted family room.
The home features an open floor plan with a lovely staircase in the entry but still provides distinct living and dining areas.
A fresh, bright eat-in kitchen opens onto the family room with views of the fireplace and has french doors to the deck. The modern hood and solid countertops give the kitchen a streamlined look.
Just up the stairs, the master bedroom is spacious, with distinctive coffered ceiling details but is close to secondary bedrooms for easy access.
The crisp white master bathroom features a generous soaking tub and separate shower and dual sinks.
This home is located at the back of the community with views of the trees (instead of the neighbors!) Two decks, one off the kitchen and one at the back of the yard, and a patio just off the walk-out basement provide a relaxing spot to grill or add a fire pit.
With a finished walk-out basement (with a third garage door for workshop access) this home has tons of storage!

Georgia’s PATH Foundation also has a trail at Chastain Park. “One of PATH’s more social trails, the double-loop trail around North Fulton Golf Course and Chastain Park, is frequented by groups walking dogs, running laps, and pushing baby strollers. The trail is marked as two 5K courses and a separate 3K course. There are lights along the loop around North Fulton Golf Course to facilitate predawn and evening use. This trail is available for all user groups but primarily functions as a pedestrian venue.” You are also right across the park from The Galloway School.
